I'm not sure I believe your claims in the article. Not to imply that the article deliberately misrepresented the facts - but I would like to see for myself the list of the supposed 180 companies. Is that a fair request?

With all the resources aavailable to the federal government you would think that they would offer a Free Credit Repair Service or at least make the information more readily available to consumers.

Would you license your personal data to advertising platforms if you were paid directly for it?
Yes -- So much of my personal data is already in the hands of advertisers anyhow; I may as well be paid for it.
Possibly -- It depends how much I would be compensated and how the data I authorize to share would be used and protected.
No -- I would not sell my personal data at any price.
